Fourth Happold Medal Lecture to focus on the Regeneration of Manchester

This event has finished

The CIC and the Happold Trust are to host the fourth Happold Medal Lecture, a regular event held in memory of the CIC ’s first chairman, Professor Sir Edmund (Ted) Happold. Sir Howard Bernstein, will receive the fourth Happold Medal award after delivering the lecture “The Regeneration of Manchester” on Monday 4th April 2005 at 6.30pm at the ICE in London.

At a time when regeneration and sustainability are such important issues CIC is delighted that Sir Howard Bernstein will give the next Happold Lecture. Sir Howard is Chief Executive of Manchester City Council. He played a key role in the regeneration of Hulme, the first area in the UK to attract City Challenge Status; the construction of Manchester Stadium and Sport City Complex; and the rebuilding of the city centre after the 1996 bomb blast. He was also instrumental in securing Manchester as Host City for the XVII Commonwealth Games in 2002, the largest multi-sport event ever hosted by the UK and the most successful Games ever.
Any construction professional is welcome to attend and applications from young professionals will be particularly welcomed.

Attendance to the lecture is free, but numbers will be limited and therefore early booking is essential.
